Flight – Arrival

Amsterdam to Tokyo, Tokyo to Osaka

As you can see, I was able to take a good shot of mount Fuji (富士山, fujisan) from my flight from Tokyo to Osaka airport. I had a good flight, though the twelve hour flight from Amsterdam to Tokyo was a bit little bit boring and long. Luckily, there were some very friendly Dutch and Japanese people on board to kill the time. After some off and on sleep (choose a movie, lay back, relax, close your eyes and enjoy the experience) I woke up to find there was only two hours left until Narita airport. Good! Switching from the international airliner to the local one was a breeze and after only one more hour of being airborne I arrived at Itami to be picked up by Maki-chan and her mom. After nine months, I was so happy to see her again! And so was she. Ah yes, good times. After my arrival we went to eat sushi at kuru kuru sushi and went home to unpack my suitcases.

I took my first day (today) to relax and get used to the climate (sticky hot). Tomorrow I’m going to Nipponbashi, (Osaka’s electric town similar to Akihabara in Tokyo) one of my favorite places to go. So I can get ready for my first gig this Sunday.

More soon! おやすみなさい (sleep well).

行くよー! Let’s go!
